One thing that really impressed me during the WEC event this week was the use of chokes. Jens Pulver pulled off a nice choke on Cub Swanson and Urijah Faber locked in a solid choke against Jeff Curan.
Swanson did the ill advised lunge before properly setting up for a takedown. Probably because he was in awe of Pulver’s standup. From there he found himself in a vicious submission. Faber was more innovative with his and I still can’t remember how he achieved it. I will have to go back and watch the fight again.
However, here is a video of a slick manuever that allows you to achieve a Brabo choke on someone while laying on your back. Compliments of Jeff Glover…
